Pizza Time Short Film

"Round 3, fight!" It's Pizza Time! Order yourself a pie and enjoy this action comedy short film. Pizza Time is the latest short made by filmmaking collective Maker Table, based out of Dallas, TX - we also featured their horror short Monitor last year. This incredibly fun 80s throwback is about a legendary pizza delivery driver, who upon arriving at his destination, stumbles into the scene of a hitman's contract killing. Will he make it out alive or not? Starring Eric Jacobus and Ben Worley (who also made the music for the short). Director Ryan Polly explains: "I made the film as an homage to Jackie Chan and great action-comedy films of the 80's." I dig the fight choreography in this, and the arcade machines, good times. Watch in full below.
